By Agency Report

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that 25 million Iranians have been infected with the coronavirus and that another 35 million are at risk of acquiring it.

The figures, would constitute a new world record, far more than the 3.7 million cases reported by leaders, United States.

Rouhani said the figures he reeled out were based on a new Health Ministry report.

And they are far higher Iran’s official toll of 269,440 infected.

President Rouhani in a televised speech did not address the discrepancy.

His address was directed to the national coronavirus campaign headquarters in Tehran.

Iran, with a population of more than 80 million, has been the Middle East country hardest hit by the epidemic.

“Our estimate is that as of now 25 million Iranians have been infected with this virus and about 14,000 have lost their dear lives,” Rouhani said in the speech.

“There is the possibility that between 30 and 35 million other people will be at risk,” he said.

“In total, more than 200,000 people have been hospitalised,” he said.

The Health Ministry on Friday said 13,791 people had died from COVID-19.
